My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Orange zest, cherries, fudge, hints of cardamom and nutmeg, a bit shy overall.
Palate: Stewed apples, orange zest, vanilla, hints of cocoa, nutmeg, hints of white pepper.
Finish: Medium long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: Even though the nose is rather timid to open up, it is still the best aspect of this whisky. The palate lacks flavour and the finish lacks length.
Rating: 81/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
